Ekiti - The Chairman of Ekiti State Teaching Service Commission, Mr Bayo Adeniran, has directed all teachers affected by the recent postings to report at their new duty posts with immediate effect.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adeniran gave the directive in Ado Ekiti on Monday during a visit to some public secondary schools in the state capital.
Adeniran, who frowned at the recalcitrant attitude of some teachers who refused to report at their new schools, said government would sanction anyone who flouted its orders.
He directed all principals to take the attendance of students and teachers before starting each day’s work in order to detect absentees.
The chairman also urged teachers to ensure quality teaching while endeavouring to communicate with the students in English to enable them learn and speak the language well.
He also counselled the teachers to encourage group reading among students, saying this would improve their learning skills and enhance good performance in examinations.
Adeniran directed that Literature in English should be made compulsory for all students in secondary schools to expose them to good reading habit.
